use placards also use them to park on the street and they can legally park in a green zone or at a metered spot without feeding the meter. but there is a problem that has been at least broadcast in the media of late. so if we set placards aside for a moment, i think everybody who's tried to park in san francisco knows it's really hard to find a spot. we're all in competition. and this is one of the reasons why our city supports having public transit and other modes of transportation like walking or biking. but for people who have a mobility disability, some of those other options aren't necessarily there for them. a car might be really their best transportation option. we might live in neighborhoods that aren't served well by transit. we might have difficulty waiting for transit. and we also economically might not be able to afford some of the other transit options like taxis as a good example. what we see is that there are perceptions out there that there are people who are abusing placards and i'm sure there are some people who are abusing placards. doesn't make much sense it me
